North west Argentina holiday, tailor made
Description of North west Argentina holiday, tailor made
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThis is a tailor-made, guided trip; groups are very small, helping to minimise the negative environmental and social impact.
This is a journey through the Andes. Much of the trip is spent in pristine nature, including salt deserts, and colourful mountains. Our travellers are briefed by local guides and tour leaders as to how to minimise their impact on the environment. Advise includes disposing of all waste responsibly and recycling whenever possible. Feedback also includes some useful information on local flora and fauna and tips on how to travel responsibly.
This trip will take travellers to the high-altitude wine region of El Calafate. We would be pleased to recommend sustainable “Bodegas”, where the vineyards are farmed with an efficient use of the local ecosystem’s natural resources.
We work with small hotels run by people aware of their environmental responsibilities. Most of the accommodation consists of traditional constructions, often built using local materials and the high-altitude architecture of the Andean villages.
PeopleWe want local populations to benefit from the resources generated by tourism, by putting as much as possible back into the local communities. We support local employment and communities in our choice of accommodation, tours, restaurants, etc.
This trip is no different from others we provide, in that it encourages real interaction between people while respecting the culture, history and customs of each individual community.
Travellers will have a chance to spend a total of 7 nights with rural families in different Andean villages. An opportunity to familiarize with local customs and traditions, see local people go about their daily life, learn how local artisans colour and wave the lama wool. We highly recommend our travellers to take some time to talk to the locals, know their stories and traditions and purchase locally made handcrafts.
We always take into consideration the feedback we receive from the local population to try to improve the quality of services in the best way possible.
We donate 3% of the total price of this trip to co-fund micro-projects implemented by local schools, associations and ONGs. These are community projects based on education and conservation activities, especially addressed to young people.
